I really don't understand the recent resurgence and interest in collecting these failures. 3DO, CD-I, Jaguar and a few others seem to be pretty hot right now with the trendy retro goobers. I can't for the life of me figure out why. It sure as hell isn't nostalgia, no-one played these pieces of shit back in the day and those that did don't have fond memories of them. Hell, I owned a 3DO when it came out and it was just awful. People are dropping serious money on some of this stuff. It's one thing to drop a few bucks on a crappy SNES game, it's a whole other to drop several hundred on literally some of the worst games ever made, from easily the worst period in gaming, there are no hidden gems. It's all Jank-ass FMV garbage, digitized sprites and interactive music videos. Even the "good" games are terrible... it's all shit. The whole retro collecting scene now is like some sort of fucked up funhouse mirror version of what it used to be.
